So I'm sitting here eating a freshly microwaved spicy poppadom, and I'm thinking to myself, what is everyone on PF's favourite snack??

As above, mine is a poppadom to eat while I'm typing away on PF. What's yours?

Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure it's a species of dinosaur. Triassic. Small. Plates on the back. Crawled on all fours. Vegetarian. Usually of a cheerful disposition. Social animals, but displaying no interest in politics. Usually ate their own young as soon as they hatched, except the ones that got away. Not aquatic. Not tropical. Preferred temperate climate but spent winters in Arizona. Yeah. That was the poppadom.

No, I'm sorry. I think I was actually describing the family that used to live next door to us.

well poppadom is how the packet spells them flour things that you cook that go with currys and stuff. Poppadom, papadom, its all good.

I heard that purple jellyfish was quite a delicacy for zoobies, not just a snack.

I like warm salted nuts.

Cashews are my favorite.

Fried green plantain (occasionally banana) chips. When the season permits, the rose apple makes for a delicately flavored delicious treat.

Um, hello? Cheetos?
Not my favorite now, but when I was younger... there was no better snack- it made your fingers orange! How magically delicious! uh huhhyeah...

Anyway, my favorite snack is coffee or an orange. Eating an orange just makes me happy :) So sweet and juicy and light and fresh and mmm...

Why do you call them Wotsits? That's so goofy...

I love boiled peanuts. It's an Alabama delicacy.
But I found out my friend from India likes them too! She cooks them much better than I do. I always get them a little too salty.

Actually, it's well known that the majority of people in the UK have never even seen a real orange, just the fake, mechanical ones. Hence the phrase: "He's as batty as a clockwork orange!"

Jimmy, I told a Cockney lady at the store that I wanted some apples and pears. She slapped me. :biggrin:

My favorite snack food? Tortilla Chips or Nachos and HOT HOT Salsa

Any and all kinds of nuts: now that makes sense doesn't it? :wink:
